Heroes of the kitchen

Learn more about the talents who will treat you to culinary delights on this evening.

Volker Weitkunat

Chef at the Hotel Bellevue-Terminus

This is what I cook at the Food Unplugged event:

  • Plucked trout fillet from the flame board with sour cream, stick bread and cucumber
  • Spare ribs of Engelberg veal with egg sponge, baked carrots and roasted durum wheat

For me, that's what cooking without gas and without electricity is all about:
Basically, I'm glad that nowadays we have many electronic helpers in the kitchen that make our everyday life easier. It's hard to imagine how and what we would cook if we didn't have all these helpers. For me, cooking without electricity and gas has something very earthy about it and presents us with new challenges. It's a whole different way of cooking, and you have to work with all your senses even more. I am looking forward to it.

Urs Portmann

Mountain restaurant Fürenalp

This is what I cook at the Food Unplugged event:

  • Bramata polenta rounded off with spicy Stäfelialp cheese and sage butter.              
  • Mountain hay soup with marinated dried venison - carpaccio 

For me, this is what cooking without gas and without electricity is all about:
The challenge with an ancient way of direct heat production.  To bring passion and natural flavour into the food.

Thomas Matter

Restaurant Grafenort

This is what I cook at the Food Unplugged event:

  • Beef brisket sandwich prepared in the smoker with crispy sourdough bread from the wood-fired oven.
  • Hot smoked trout on homemade crispbread pickled red onion and fennel emulsion

For me, that's what cooking without gas and without electricity is all about:
I have had my own smoker for over 10 years and have tried out a lot of things in my spare time that I can now use in the restaurant. For me, cooking on an open fire means being independent and not being dependent on infrastructure or technology.

Joshua Lüscher

Restaurant Cattani at Kempinski Palace Engelberg

This is what I cook at the Food Unplugged event:

  • Alpstein Chicken Teriyaki Bowl from the Tandoori Skewer with Quinoa, Spicy Mayo, Spring Garlic and Sesame Seeds
  • Preserved vegetables with lettuce heart and smoked egg yolk cream

For me, this is what cooking without gas and without electricity is all about:
It reminds me of my youth in the Boy Scouts - you discover new terrain, stay spontaneous and cook completely free of sterile ideas.

André Keller

Restaurant Spannort

This is what I cook at the Food Unplugged event:
We at Restaurant Spannort are responsible for the sweet ending. We will be inspired by the forest. You can be curious.

For me, that's what cooking without gas and without electricity is all about:
For me, cooking purely in nature without gas and electricity is a step back to our ancestors. To conjure up dishes from simple foods that are simply ingenious in themselves fascinates me completely. I am also fascinated by the fact that I need much more feeling for temperature, cooking point and the environment to achieve the desired result.

Brunner Weinmanufaktur

Brunner Weinmanufaktur will treat you to a delightful wine to match the menu.
